Everyone has a morning ritual... whether it's getting out of bed and headed straight for the shower... or straight to the gym... or straight to the coffee pot!! Whatever it may be, it's something you can't do without every single morning! Am I right??.... (I hope I be!).
Every morning after my cup of joe, morning kiss to my Hubs, and sweaty workout with my fellow bootcampers, I'm headed to get my spiritual uplift. I dedicate about 10 minutes to mute the radio and meditate in my quiet time. I have 2 main go-to sources of inspiration at the moment... a daily email from Joel Osteen, and a book that was a gift from my Aunt, Promises From God's Word for Women.
Today's Word with Joel and Victoria are emails that focus on one scripture from the Bible. What I love about these emails are the breakdown they provide us. They talk about how the scripture is applied in life, and how we can overcome any obstacles we may be facing throughout the day. Totally helps me put things into perspective!
The Promises from God's Word for Women book is uhhh-amazing!! I read a chapter each morning, and it also focuses on a scripture each day. Similarly to the emails, it talks about how you can interpret the scripture through life. Each chapter highlights other scriptures that are similar to the main scripture, and also has inspiring quotes from various authors.
I started writing down these scriptures, quotes, and anything else I came across that was motivational and moving to me. It really sets the tone of my day... and when I feel the lows coming on, I can open my notebook and remind myself of the positive things in life that I have to be thankful for.
Do you take any quiet time to soak in the good? I urge you friends to start your day with positivity... it really starts off your cray cray day with a bang!
